My first Brisket, and it sure won't be my last - Page 2

post #21 of 33
I Can't stop drooling. Was hoping to do a brisket this weekend but, the new smoker hasn't arrived yet. As for you people who can't get brisket without pullin teeth, Down here we can get them like gettin oranges in Florida. There everywhere. perhaps we can set something up to get you folks hooked up? I picked one up last week for $2.49lb and they had a whole freezer case full. they had ribs too but they didn't look all that great.

I am sincerely impressed with your food. If this is your first brisket, then I'm gonna love seeing the ones that follow and hate them too, since you have raised the bar impossibly high! PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif Outstanding beef, there FiU and a big congratulations on your patience in finding one that was realistically priced. Good for you. Your mushrooms and ABT's were top notch~ you clearly have that chef's attention to detail that makes food look pretty!

Glad you liked the finishing sauce and no worries on tweaking it or sharing. If I pass it on, it's yours to use as you wish.

Did you spritz or mop your brisket? You had a magazine-perfect bark on it that I have been trying unsuccessfully for years to get, nicely done, yet not charred looking. Just perfect. You've earned everyone of the points.gif

Thanks for all the good words people.
I spritzed with apple juice. Was considering a mop but just spritzed since it was my first.
It's wonderful that a bit of smoke, a bunch of patience and a handful of love can do for a slab of meat.
I gave some to my brother to take to work and he let some people try it, now I actually have people wanting to place orders. Might be a good way to earn some cash doing something I love, kind of like Tip but not quite the smoke artist he is.

Super job, everything looks great. I trimmed my first brisket up, the second time I did it I left all the fat on. I know what you mean about losing a nice bark to the fat, so this last one I did, I trimmed only the really heavy fat parts, leaving no less that about 3/8" or so. Still got a nice and juicy brisket with a good bark.

Wow! I can't even believe I missed this thread when it was fresh.

Excellent brisky burn. My first was anything but impressive, my second was much better.

You got that down, right out of the gate!
